I don’t exactly think there’s enough data here to be conclusive, but it’s interesting.
“While both men and women said the inhibition technique decreased their hunger, the brain scans showed that men’s brain activity actually decreased, while the part of women’s brains that responds to food remained active.”
Perhaps instead of inhibition techniques, they should teach them to focus on what they can have so they don’t get the deprivation factor. That’s definitely a technique that works better for me.
When you are facing temptation, what works for you?
